Watched most of the races today. How in the world do those guys do that - they average, on a cross course, speeds that I have been happy with on the road. They keep it up for over a stinkin' hour! Man! The two CX races I have been in danged near kilt me - and in neither did I ride more than about 40 mins.
And, I think I got the kid interested....he wants a cross bike now (he's 19). Just wish the wife had been there - woulda finally hooked her (now that she's got a road bike, is getting interested in off road on her cross bike again!).
